Gifts for Good

Eco-friendly options to consider when you want to thank your wedding party



You may feel like the center of the universe on your big day, but your wedding can have an even bigger impact on the environment. When you consider the amount of CO2 emissions created when guests have to travel long distances for your wedding, not to mention the extra food and flowers that are tossed at the end of the day, it’s easy for the bride and groom to feel a bit guilty. There are a few ways to ease your conscience: forgoing flowers, cutting down on your guest list or even opting for an organic menu. However, the simplest way to enjoy the celebration guilt-free is by getting your wedding party sustainable parting gifts. Here are a few eco-friendly ideas

1. Music lovers can give their bridesmaids a “cymbal” of their affection with this rustic heart necklace.

2. Keep cool and eco-chic with this white wine decanter made of recycled glass. It even has an ice chamber to chill your wine without diluting it.
$58, uncommongoods.com

3. Not only does this luscious body cream smell good enough to eat, it’s made locally, is vegan and wax-free.
Simblissity Whip’d Cream, $23, Artistree Gifts, 2628 Edgewater Drive, Orlando

4. Baseball fans rejoice, these stylish cufflinks are made of recycled stadium seats from such major league venues as Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium.
$170-$200, uncommongoods.com

5. Give members of your wedding party one of these handmade, pure soy candles in a plantable box that—with a little water and sunshine—will grow into the fragrance of the candle. BONUS: The box is embedded with seeds! Just plant it, and watch it grow into the designated candle fragrance.
$22.99, Palmer’s Garden & Goods, 2611 Corrine Drive, Orlando.
